Another Dose



Another Dose

Fingerprint on ashes
Cigarette splashes
We try to rewind

Monsters on threads—
Thick and loose shreds
From window

To window, brown
And slick like tongues
Lubricated magic wands,

The word goes viral.

We find remedy in
Toxins, fluorescent lights &
Exposed veins—

Crushed pills on tilted
Mirrors and easily
Forgotten names.

We like to chew on
The ends of markers and
Splintered fingernails,

When the ice thaws
Upon abandoned rails,
Slowly awakening

The hunger,

That walks these dirty streets,
Curls and crumbles

On watermarked sheets,
A faint whisper in the
Lukewarm wind—

It’s time.
